Bank Holiday Monday


A day off! Whoop whoop! After Miltown Malbay Farmers Market on Friday, Chapel Lane Market on Saturday and Bunratty Sunday Market yesterday I was ready for a day off. 

And what does a bag maker do on her day off? 

Bake bread! I’m working my way through Valerie O’Connor’s book “Bread on the Table” which I came across  during my monthly volunteer shift at the Limerick Craft Hub. 

I have tried to persuade my husband and son that we should eat the bread NOW! but they are unmoved. Breakfast will be yummy. 

And then I wanted cake, so I made a Norwegian kardamummerkaka (cardamom cake to you & I). The recipe is from The Hairy Bakers. It’s divine – according to Si & Dave it is the perfect cake to have with a coffee. 

So tomorrow when I’m back behind my sewing machine (making messenger bags in case you’re interested), I’ll be fuelled by my bread and looking forward to a mid morning coffee break spiced up with a dash of cardamom.
